they're authentic and not. look, andrea, running for president of the united states is about earning the trust, earning the trust of the american people or the citizens of the state of ohio. governor romney has raised serious questions about whether or not he can be trusted based on what he said over the course of the last three debates completely inconsistent with what he's been saying during the republican primaries over the last year quite frankly over the last six years he's been seeking the presidency. >> if you win ohio, do you win the presidency? >> i think it's -- puts us in a good path to do that, but as chris was pointing out and mark pointed out we're working hard in every battleground state. we feel good about each of the battleground states i was in north carolina last weekend, i'm going to north carolina this weekend. we've raised actually registered hundreds of thousands of voters in the state of north carolina. early voting has begun in all of these states. early voting has been strong. i think on -- from our perspective. we have the best ground game. knowing the pres

the president of the united states as he tours with chris christie today? >> i think they want to hear specific things about how they're going to get help and how soon it's going to come. when people think about the federal government and fema and the bureaucracy i think it's daunting. people are worried it's going to be red tape and programs that are not going to essentially solve their needs in the short term. you know, the short-term needs people have here is basically to get the debris away from their homes to secure structures to make it safer. there are still thousands of people in shelters who are going to be running out of food and supplies and those kinds of places up and down the coast and further inland. power, of course, is out to 60% of the entire state. so before -- once you get those things re-established, then you can begin to start rebuilding and really getting your foot -- your feet back on the ground here. it's going to take a while. i think people are encouraged that the president is coming. it certainly shows that he's concerned about what's happened here. but as always, i

agrees across the political divide in the united states who follow the issue closely that the central bank sanctions are the ones that had the real bite. the administration resisted efforts in congress repeatedly to get sanctions in place. you can cite, as they often do the economic implications. it's not clear to me why there were economic implications in 2009-2010 but not in # 2011-2012 but they said it would under mine the diplomatic strategy reaching out to the ayotollah, unconditionally trying to get unconditional talks. they were silent when there was a genuine protest movement in iran that would have put political pressure on the regime. all the moments whether it was economic or political pressure in 2009 and 2010 the administration did nothing because they believed there was a direct deal they could get done with the regime. it failed. it didn't ha. it is important that today we have sanctions in place that are having an impact. we are simply saying imagine if those sanctions and the political pressure that could be waged had been put in place earlier on. to say things are go

term as president of the united states. >> what about his plan? we know his plan has not worked. and last night there are a lot of people that asked questions and i think they deserve some answers on a number of fronts. i think it was jeremy who asked the question about how am i going to get a job when i get out of college. half the kids in this country not able to get work or college-level work coming out of college. that's a question that needs to be answered. and then you heard lorain say, when you promise, mr. president, to put in place an immigration reform bill in your first term, i guess it was me that asked this question, her idea, she brought up immigration, you promised to put it on your first term, highest priority, you would put out a bill in your first year, but you didn't even file a bill, she deserves an answer. and then we heard from michael, and he asked the question why should we vote for you? because the middle class is getting buried. i described all the ways the president failed to help lift the middle class. this is an election about the great middle class

do in the world community if i was president of the united states. that's what they think closes the deal for them. i think they think they've won the economic argument. the obama campaign would dispute that. they think they might have won the argument with that first debate. can they close the deal. he did it by playing it safe. >> and elizabeth, defense spending, another big change. well -- >> actually not -- >> but another big difference i should say between these two sides. one of the last remaining differences. >> in my neck of the woods that's what i heard, still a huge divide. the numbers -- they were throwing around numbers last night that were not -- the way it adds up romney would over the course of the next decade, add $2 trillion to the defense spending more or less if you go byc cam clagss and what budget analysts calculate and what obama would not. romney says obama is cutting the defense budget by $1 trillion. not quite. so far he's cut it $500 billion over ten years, a leveling off of the defense budget. there is a big difference though -- >> the rate of increase.

him to do, not back down, look like he was credible, could be the vice president of the united states. biden was this huge figure for good or bad depending on your perspective. i think he would have won the debate andrea on points, narrowly, had he just controlled a little bit more his off camera reaction. the two of you spend more time on television than i do but we all spend some amount of time on television. the camera can be on you when you're not talking. joe biden has been in politics and he knows that. to quote spinal tap turned the amplifier up to 11 when like 8 would have probably done the laughing and the kind of open disdain for paul ryan and paul ryan would be talking and you could in the split screen he would mouth that's not true. the democratic base loved it. but i thought he was a little too hot. >> stopped the hemorrhaging, fired the base. don't know what impact is on undecided voters. there were some serious policy points. he absolutely threw the state department and cia under the bus. contradicted the state department in what they had just testified to about benghaz

apparatus. so did that require extra security provided by the united states, and could we provide that with the content of the host government because they might have concluded that too much of a military force would look more like an occupation rather than simply security. so these are issues that have to be really examined. i think it's legitimate and very fair to raise the questions. i think it's unfair to reach a conclusion until we have all of the answers. and i don't think those have been fully provided. secondly, i think there are two issues involved. do i think that the video was calculated to provoke? it was and it did. and when you put your finger or stir up a hornet's nest, someone's going to get hurt. but i think there were groups like al qaeda-affiliated groups who were going to plan to attack our embassy personnel at some point and were looking for an excuse, and they got it when there was confusion and chaos with a reaction to that provocative film. so there are a lot of conflict involved here. we need to sort through the facts and see where we go from here. >> do y

, they came to the united states intending to carry out an attack. after going southeast missouri state he decided to come back to new york, come to the new york area, and then number three, he reached out and tried to find people who would help him which was his downfall because he did it on facebook and the interthreat, somewhat ironic for a student who came to the united states to study cybersecurity. and that's how he got connected up with the fbi informant and they channeled his energies into something they knew he could do no damage because they would be in control and watching everything that he did. but the problem is, always, in a case like there is, you know, people say why didn't you just watch him? that's incredibly manpower intensive. suppose you're the fbi, you find out there's somebody who genuinely wants to kill people, doesn't care whether women and children, how many are killed as long as they make a political statement. what if they slip out of your control and do hook up with someone who can give them real explosives? no one would be happy with that. the fbi says if som

coverage. it's still the president of the united states acting like the president of the united states. it's when -- it's how you get into situations like we saw in ohio today. i don't -- i don't question the motives. i think in a short period of time what mitt romney was trying to do is how can we thread this very fine line. so i sort of understand in that way. it's just difficult because when you get this close to an election, andrea, six days, everything is with politics. everything. that's what the hard thing that mitt romney is trying to do, how do you take advantage or at least stay in the conversation, with six days left without appearing to be just overtly political and campaigning. >> mark halperin, how are they managing it? >> i don't really have any criticism of how either of the candidates is conducting themselves. governor romney had to position somewhere, he wants to do something as chris said to be part of the conversation and no one questions his motives. i think there's still lots of campaign activity, ads still on the air for both sides, surrogate activity is out there. w

thought that the president of the united states would come in and seem so ill prepared and also so disengaged or ill at ease in the visual impact of it. how surprising that is to you? you've been around them a long time. >> well you know -- >> sorry, michael. go ahead. >> i forgot you're both michaels. >> exactly. >> i yield the floor. >> i wasn't surprised because barack obama had not debate in four years and not forced in a primary context to shape his arguments as offensive argumentser defensive his offensive arguments, his defensive arguments, that's something you usually get in the primary process. that was something true of bush in 2004. there were some challenges there. i would have agreed with that expectations assessment with biden before the first debate, but now i think that biden has significant pressure in this debate to kind of try to break this cycle, this downward slide and to show that the campaign has spirit and fight in it. that, i think, raises the expectations on biden in a little bit in a way that wouldn't have been true before the first debate. >> and mike fe
